Another good lather and fine shave

with 2 comments

SOTD 6 Mar 2014

Another excellent shave, with no lather problems (though I do not get superabundant lather with Barrister & Mann soaps, the lather I do get is easily enough for a shave). Tomorrow I will return to Hallows with a different brush and see what obtains. (Hallows was a lather failure, but it may have been the brush.)

The snakewood brush from Strop Shoppe is quite a nice brush, and the Weber polished-head razor with a UFO handle did a good job, though I did swap out the Astra Superior Platinum blade at the end: it didn’t seem to cut quite so efficiently as it should.

A good splash of 4711 aftershave, and we draw closer to the weekend.

  1. May we suggest adding a bit more water for a more abundant lather?

  2. I did in fact add a bit more water to the brush as I worked the lather up. Tomorrow I’m using two brushes and will try the extra water with those.
